Background:

St. John’s Nyakabingo Secondary School is located in a remote rural area of Kasese District of Uganda, in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains. The school started in 2011 and enrols approximately 300 students 14 to 20 years of age, offering the O level high school grades (Grades 8 – 11).  It is operated by the Nyakaginogo Anglican Parish (Church of Uganda), Rwenzori Diosese, which owns the land on which the school is situated.

The high school is one of two schools which the church operates as part of its community program, the second is an elementary school.  The church works to support the impoverished community which has suffered due to the lack of basic services, its remoteness, government neglect, rebel activities in the area and a number of environmental calamities. Apart from providing schooling, the church is committed to pastoral care and health services.

Presently the school uses an incomplete structure which consists of three classrooms and an office, the church building and another temporary structure.

School and church authorities have applied to Classrooms for Africa for help.
